Brewery: Mikkeller ApS x Three Floyds Brewing Co.
Country: Denmark
ABV: 10.4%
Style: American Barleywine
Other Notes: Rice Beer

Brewer Description: (from Three Floyds website) Behold! The fifth collaborative effort of Three Floyds and Mikkeller. This complex ale is just the beverage for canal boat trips in Copenhagen or the brutal Chicago winter. Brewed in Europe and in Chicago, you can look for both editions and the subtle differences in each. Cheers and thanks for supporting craft beer.

Intro: A 750ml bottle with a best before date of 1st April 2020 (drank before that date, I’m just behind in my reviews). Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: A hazy amber orange colour with a one finger beige head that had decent retention while leaving only sparse mini spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malt, pineapple juice, orange candy, lime peel, caramel, pine, and dried citrus fruit.
Taste: Bitter, citrus rind, citrus peel, fruit tea, caramel, pine, dates, pineapple juice, and a lightly sweet and boozy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Not what I expected as it was more bitter that I expected. That’s not to say that it doesn’t work or anything, as despite the bitter and sweetness, it was still an enjoyable sipper.
